Description

Minimum age: 14 years old.

These are two hour or more rides, with the aim of improving off-road skills and endurance and also having some  fun. The rides are open to those that the coaches believe have the skills and fitness to do the rides, so please ask. It is best that you have done some of the CX sessions at GSP before venturing out.

Be prepared – take equipment!

These are NOT coached rides but we look after each other. Numbers are limited by which experienced riders are going out. Ride leaders aren’t always available so rides won’t happen every week – if there is no event available for booking that means no ride that day. We also need at least one other adult in addition to the ride-leader, so bring parents.

What you need :

  • Appropriate clothing for the weather, helmet , gloves, glasses etc.
  • Well-maintained bike: CX or MTB.  If it’s not working properly you can’t join as it will only break once out!
  • Ability to fix bike: 2 spare inner tubes, tyre levers, pump, ideally spare chain links and multi-tool.
  • Other: water, energy bar, anything you need for allergies.

We set off at 9am prompt and aim to be back at 11am but conditions and “mechanicals” can’t guarantee this.

In the event of broken bikes parents/guardians must be prepared to collect younger riders that can’t get back to the club under there own steam, wherever they may be.
